  • We just adore these guys. When COVID turned our 200 person wedding into a wedding for 30, we knew we wanted to do something special for music. When we realized they could play the whole reception and not just the ceremony, we were completely on board! Ray and Jenny were amazing, visiting our venue beforehand to explore livestream options for us since we lived across the country. With nearly no notice at all, Jenny learned GORGEOUS vocals for our special dances and Ray worked tirelessly to incorporate Arabic music and special arrangements into their set list. We were pleasantly surprised by a touch pad kiosk they installed by the stage, which allowed guests to submit requests after they wrapped up the set list. At one point, Ray came up to us discretely and mentioned that someone had requested a Nirvana song. He wanted to run it by us in case we felt it would change the tone of the evening too much. We're glad we gave him the green light to "GET WEIRD," because their version of "S... Read more

    Dear Lara, Thank you so much for this beautiful review! Your wedding day was truly unforgettable and we are so grateful to have been such an integral part of it. Thank you for trusting ESQ with so much, and for trusting me especially to sing for your special dances. It meant the world to me. Let's do it again! :) With love, Jenny

  • ESQ is the ideal team to work with for a musical accompaniment for your wedding. They were very easy to work with through the covid rescheduling process once our April 2020 date was postponed until we fell on moving our wedding to April 2021 after several different attempts to land on a new date. They also were great sports as we got updated COVID-19 rules and regulations from our wedding venue within a month of our wedding date. They were so helpful when choosing the music for our prelude and ceremony when we had specific songs that we wanted for the ceremony and only a few specifics to play during the prelude to choose other songs that really matched the ambience that we were going for with the prelude. A lot of our guests complimented their music to us and said that the music was beautiful and that it was so much brighter and clear being played on instruments right in front of them compared to if they had heard recordings of the songs. They also offered their newer livestream servic... Read more

    Dear Elizabeth and Mike, We loved working with you every step of the way! Your wedding turned out to be absolutely beautiful despite all the changes you endured, and we were so happy to be there and to be able to share it with your loved ones not in attendance via livestream. We also really enjoyed chatting with your family members from Georgia before we started our Prelude. They were a wonderful audience! We're so happy to have you both as part of the ESQ family. Enjoy your wedding bliss -- you EARNED it! - Jenny

  • Ray and the quartet were absolutely lovely! They learned a song for my husbands processional, and absolutely nailed our cocktail hour request of classic AND modern songs played throughout. They were absolutely fantastic! Would absolutely recommend.

  • Ray was my college roommate and, after watching him play other performances, I knew his quartet would be completely professional and sound fantastic. We were extremely pleased with the overall performance and felt that we got more than our money's worth. It was great to have an old friend play who is doing exciting things out in the world. If you are looking for consistent excellence, Elegance Quartet is a great bet.

    Thank you for the review Laurie, and for uploading a picture of us in action! It was a real honor to play your wedding, both on a personal level and as a vendor. Thank you for always supporting our performances!

  • After hearing ESQ at our cocktail hour, so many of us wished we booked them for the whole event. Our guest made comments all night about how great the music was and how different of a tone it set. ESQ can play anything from classical to current tracks. We 100% recommended this team. Ray...you are amazing, thank you for all of your recommendations with planning.

    Shannon, thank you so much for writing this review right after your beautiful wedding! I'm sorry we didn't catch you after cocktails to say congratulations in person, but you and Stephen make a beautiful couple and we're grateful to have been part of your celebration. We also appreciate the generous gratuity! Thank you!!

  • The Elegance String Quartet provided music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. They have an extensive and eclectic catalog of music to choose from. They were very flexible and easy to work with as we had to move our original wedding date due to Covid. All of our guests couldn't stop raving about how wonderful the music was.

    Thank you so much, Kyle! We loved playing at the Moshulu, it really was a perfect day for a wedding!

  • Elegance Quartet added the perfect magic to my October wedding. They were amazing and so many of my guests commented how beautiful the music was. The musicians in the quarter are so talented! Working with Ray was very easy and he provided excellent insight when it came to creating the song lists for both our ceremony and cocktail hour. I highly recommend them!

    Thank you again Autumn for writing such beautiful words for our ensemble! On behalf of everyone at ESQ I wish you and Blaise all the best in your life together! - Ray

  • Elegance quartet played for my wedding (ceremony and reception) in October 2020. I couldn’t possibly say enough amazing things about them. From the very start, they were communicative, helpful and SO MUCH FUN to work with. They guided me through everything, asking questions and covering bases I would have never thought of. They were complete professionals and they made me feel so comfortable that I wouldn’t have to worry about one music-related thing on my wedding day – and I didn’t. But you’re probably wondering – are they actually any good? YES! ABSOLUTELY YES! They are amazingly talented and ridiculously fun. They read the room perfectly and knew exactly what to play to keep the party going. My guests absolutely loved them and are still talking about them. If you are looking for live music, you cannot go wrong with them.

    Jackie (and Paul!), Tell your guests we are still talking about THEM, and YOU, too! Your wedding was one that we truly couldn't wait for because we had such a blast planning everything and were so excited to be able to spend the whole night with you and your amazing family and friends. It did not disappoint!!!!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for having us be such an integral part of your amazing celebration - we are so happy for you both and we loved every second of honoring your love for each other! I'm even having fun writing this review because of how much you both make me laugh and appreciate what I do. With love from me and all of ESQ, Jenny

  • One of the highlights of my daughters wedding what is the string quartet. Some friends recommended that we call Ray from elegance quartet when considering what intro we wanted for our daughter’s wedding. This was the best and I mean best decision we ever made! First impression is everything and when our guest walked in and they were playing people were mesmerized by their music! They were truly awesome! They were so communicative during the whole planning process and even during these unusual times with Covid they were able to live stream the reception and ceremony so those who could not attend could feel like they are there with us! The clarity of this lifestream was truly remarkable, a keepsake we will have forever! The music dazzled our audience and their appearance was so fitting for our affair! I planned a lot of parties over the years and I only wish I met the Elegance quartet earlier, we cannot wait to have them dazzle our guests at another event sometime soon!

    responded with the following comments.

    Dear Annette, we absolutely loved working with you! I'm so glad we were able to share the beautiful ceremony with everyone that couldn't attend! Whitney and Patrick make an amazing couple and we consider ourselves lucky to have been a part of their celebrations. Congratulations to all of you!

  • We cannot say enough positive things about them. They went above and beyond to make our wedding day a truly special experience. We were happy to be one of their test subjects in their micro-wedding virtual broadcasts and it came together flawlessly. They even took the time to go to the hotel to test the WiFi and make sure the video quality was clear. My husband is also a musician and was so impressed by the quartet. They played beautifully. We find ourselves still communicating with them months later just to express our gratitude. I would give them 10 stars if I could.

    Dear Hannah, Thank you so much for these amazingly kind words! It was such a pleasure working with you and Steven to plan your wedding ceremony. Thank you for trusting us not only with the music, but with live-streaming the event so your far-flung loved ones could take part. We really appreciate you both for helping us launch that service, and every time I rewatch your stream I can't help but smile. You make such a beautiful couple! All the best! -Jenny

  • Elegance Sting Quartet was the highlight of our wedding! They did a fantastic job with the ceremony, and we had a blast dancing when they broke out their electric instruments and digital jukebox! They were beyond helpful throughout the entire process and an absolute joy to work with. We could not be happier with our experience with them :)

  • The Elegance Quartet played a major role in making my daughter’s wedding elegant and musical! They played beautifully and sensitively at the welcome time, the ceremony, the cocktail hour and the dinner, knowing when to pick it up, be romantic, or entertain my granddaughter with Frozen songs. They were punctual and set up in various areas of the wedding venue as needed. And Ray, the musical director, was great to work with--always responsive to my emails, helpful in song choices, and perfect in playing our choices on cue.

    Thank you so much, Pat! We loved entertaining your guests at Brandywine River Museum. Congrats to Tom and Lisa again!

  • Couldn't be happier with Elegance String Quartet. They played for our wedding ceremony and sounded incredible. So many of our guests went out of their way to tell us how beautiful the music was. My sister in law and girlfriends were literally mesmerized during their prelude performance. Ray was very professional and easy to work with during the planning process. They were happy to coordinate and play with a harpist we had already hired, and were so flexible when it came to changing dates because of COVID. If you are looking for a string quartet, don't miss out on ESQ. I highly recommend them!!

  • I recently had Elegance String Quartet play at my wedding in Media Pennsylvania. Via email and phone call, Ray and Jenny were a pleasure to deal with. With all of our complex wedding planning, Elegance was by far the easiest aspect to coordinate and book. They were very responsive to emails and answered all of my questions. They were very flexible with package options, my song requests, and made perfect recommendations for classical pieces. When I spoke to Ray on the phone, he knew just what songs I was requesting just from my sorry attempt at humming them! They arrived on time, dressed very nice, were very professional and performed beautifully. Many people attending the wedding commented on how much of a classy touch they were! Hire them now!
